With this I mean to control the programs and processes that come up with Windows, because often times programs that you do not want to upload with the operating system, this means that they run automatically when Windows goes up. You can disable them in the Task Manager in the Home tab.
For example, I almost never use Skype and uTorrent and these usually start with Windows consuming unnecessary resources, so the Disable so they do not start with Windows.
Note: The Task Manager opens by pressing the CTRL + ALT + DEL or right-clicking the taskbar, and then clicking Task Manager.
